Stained Glass Windows of Dimnent Memorial Chapel
  North Arcade - Window Six

This window was given in memory of the Rev. Ame Vennema, D.D., fourth president of Hope College (1911-18). The donor is unknown.









(left) A stern-faced Apostle Paul is depicted delivering a now famous speech at Mars Hill: 'Now what you worship as something unknown I am going to proclaim to you. The God who made the world and everything in it is the Lord of heaven and earth and does not live in temples built by hands.'

(right) The Apostle Peter is depicted holding the key to the kingdom of heaven while his other hand is held in submission over his heart. A distinct difference from other portrayals in these windows is Peter’s bushy white beard and curly white hair. Story has it that an early sketch of Peter was rejected by the college because he had been drawn thin, scrawny and bald-headed.

The symbols, from left to right, are The Chalice, The Winged Torch, and The Holy Bible.
